Trump Was Right: On the Economy and the Border

President-Trump's-"Remain in Mexico"-policy

These days, former President Trump is most likely getting tired of doing the “I told you so!” dance around his Mar-a-Lago club. While the media works overtime to protect Biden, the current administration still can not help themselves from handing Trump more wins and more political ammunition for 2024. Two cases in point are the teetering U.S. economy and the crisis on America’s southern border.

The greatest impact of President Biden’s economic agenda can be felt by every single American household that is now paying approximately $175 more per month for basic goods and services than they were 8 months ago. Inflation is up 5.3% as of August 2021 compared to the same time one year ago. 

In June 2021, former President Trump appeared on Fox Business’ Varney & Co. show, where he outlined his worst fears of America under Biden. Trump expressed that he was “very worried” about the direction of America. He warned of “massive inflation,” which was “going to be rampant” and “very bad,” if Biden and the Congressional Democrats got their way. 

“We had energy independence when I left [office]. Gasoline was $1.87, now it’s going to be double that. It’s going to be triple and quadruple that,” Trump told show host Stuart Varney by phone. Indeed, the national average of the price of gas is $3.288 as of this writing, nearly double, as Trump astutely predicted. 

“Food prices, everything, lumber for a house is up at a level that it’s never been, so it costs much more for housing. It’s inflation,” Trump told Varney. 

“I used to spend $70 a week, but all of sudden this summer, I noticed that I couldn’t leave the store without spending at least $120,” education worker Allison says, according to the New York Post.

On immigration, things are even more bleak for everyone living in Biden’s America.

When Trump was preparing to leave office in December 2020, the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) reported 40,565 Southwest border crossings. Under President Biden, the USBP reported 208,887 crossings at the Southwest border in August 2021. That’s more than 4 times as many people crossing the border than when President Trump left office a mere 8 months ago. 

As the Biden border crisis continues unabated, Biden has not visited the border to see the carnage firsthand. In fact, he hasn’t visited the border in over a decade, leading RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to make the point that “his policies show it” in a recent op-ed penned in The Hill. In an ironic twist, Biden laid into Trump on the campaign trail over his immigration policies, particularly deportations and entry refusal, as his administration is now defending those practices-mostly because they now know that Trump was right, and it worked.

While it appears that President Biden is trying to have his cake and eat it too, the American people can see through the President’s words as compared to his deeds. President Biden’s job approval rating has now fallen to 44%, down from 55% in July, according to Pew Research Center’s latest poll (Sept. 13-19, 2021). Clearly, Trump was right about a lot of things, especially the economy and the Biden border crisis.

Biden is doing his best to destroy America. Maybe a few more Republicans will stand up to fight Biden Pelosi and Schumer. If they get their two bills passed then it is no reason to look to 2022 because the Chinese will own us!

I’m not a Biden fan and I don’t think he’s doing a very good job but I don’t really need to have Trump tell me that, I can figure that out for myself. As far as I’m concerned, Trump blew it, he crossed the line Jan 6th and I’ll never support him again.

Trump has been right about everything since day one. So I am listening closely to him when he says that we should NOT vote in 2022 or 2024, unless Mr. Trump is officially declared the victor of the 2020 election. It is a controversial stance but I am PROUD of him for being bold and speaking the truth.

We must vote in 2022 and 2024. I we don’t kick the fools and radicals out of office this next time we will never have a chance to get this country turned around. Republicans are massing millions of dollars to get out the vote.

The vendetta against Trump is still so active because of the fear “they” have of him laying their personal

Of course he was right on the economy & the border…Everything Trump & his team did was correct.
Trump the non-politician is your basic meat & potato’s kind of guy, he tells you like it is, makes no bones about it…He is a ” can do ” kind of man, that is his everyday persona on a daily basis…
Trump will not & has not committed to a 2024 run for potus, why is that? Trump is keenly aware the 2020 election fiasco has to be addressed first & foremost.
Has anyone noticed how quiet MSM, the Democrats & RINO’s have been with respect to the AZ audits & the ( 6 ) key states that made the stolen election possible? All of it is once again on the back burner, why is that?
In summary: If the fraudulent 2020 US presidential election & the fraudulent Georgia senatorial runoff election is allowed to stand as is, the faux administration is able to ram through a 5.5 trillion dollar reconciliation bill, which essentially makes everything they illegally committed in 2020 now legal for the 2022 upcoming midterms, it is game over for America…This in all likiyhood means the Democrat & RINO’s beloved Dominion/Smartmatic systems remain in place, just like in Venezuela, i.e. Chavez & Maduro were keenly aware of the importance of Dominion voting machines & the associated Smartmatic software that work together, hand in hand…It got Obama reelected to a 2nd term in 2012 & was allowed to stand, it almost got HRC elected, but it did not anticipate so many people would vote for Trump in 2016, i.e. he beat the algorithms. We all now know what has occurred in the 2020 presidential & the Georgia general, with one minor caveat, they got caught & the election fraud committed was overwhelming on BOTH of those elections. Thus far the Democrats, the poll workers, the crooked AG’s, the crooked RINO Board of Supervisors in AZ, the crooked gov. of AZ, i.e. Doug Ducey, the crooked SOS in Georgia, Brad Raffensberger & his sidekick gov, Brian Kemp, all have thus far been held completely unaccountable for their treasonous behavior against the people of their respective states & every American citizen as a whole…
I wait with bated breath for the eventual arrests of each & every one of them, all the way down to the individual poll workers themselves & those managers just above them…
God bless America,
Bill on the Hill… :~)
